Releev 1 Day Cold Sore treatment is not the newest cold sore medication out there. It is made by viraMedX. If you are cold sore sufferer you might have come across this product at the pharmacy. It is helpful in reducing the pain of fever blisters (another term used to describe cold sores) as well as reducing the healing time required. It can effectively reduce all the symptoms of cold sores within 24 hours. For those who do not know, cold sore symptoms include itching, pain, burning, throbbing, and bleeding.

A medicine that claims to be able to heal an incurable condition like cold sores within one day is often met with skepticism. I am skeptical. Whenever I used it, it did not seem to make much difference; however, many people swear by this product.

It is most effective to use Releev at the very first sign of a cold sore and it may reduce the symptoms you experience. The topical cream is composed of the following active ingredients: microbicide, phytochemicals derived from Asteraceae family and a proprietary blend of 0.13% benzalkonium chloride. The inactive ingredients of this product include methyl cellulose, purified water, and potassium sorbate and methyl propylparaben.

Releev 1 Day Cold Sore treatment can be used by people of every age group and it should be applied to the affected area 3-4 times a day. When compared to all cold sore mediactions, Releev is often found to be the most effective. As I said, it is best to use this cold sore medication at the first sign of an outbreak, but it can be used at any stage of a cold sore to reduce your symptoms. Using it will also prohibit the risk of a secondary infection.

Various studies have shown the effectiveness of this product. It is effective for many people, but the level of effectiveness varies from person to person. In some cases, it seems to be very effective for many people and not at all effective for others.

The Releev 1 Day Cold Sore treatment costs about $20 for a small bottle, which is pretty expensive. It is worth it if it helps you deal with a cold sore.
